Default Waistcoat

Guys need a bit of advice looking for a decent leather waistcoat. Dont want any cheap paki tack. Something similar to this would do, any recommendations of who to deal with.

The one Ann bought me was from Country & Equestrian leatherwear UK
Lovely leather very dark brown not black
Waistcoat is made up from four panel's not small piece's cotton type lining not nylon

My previous one came from the Norfolk leather company it's okay but not a patch on the new one for the price it was good value

As Glyn said try ebay there are some gooduns on there but also some tat as well so be very careful amazon would be another place to check

Good luck finding good leather is not easy

ONLY if you pay for them!

Not looking for extra leatherwork at the moment while I build my new place. Once the new workshop is built I will have space for all my leatherwork kit.

By the way, I only make waistcoats to order, made to measure and I point blank refuse to do a copy or use cheap hides. The zips I use are the best you can get. I usually only use three panels for the waistcoat, lining can be anything you want.

You tell me what you want, I measure you up and I make exactly what you ask for. I give you a price at the start and we either agree or you get someone else to make it for you. You pay for the materials up front and the balance on completion, when you are happy with it.

If you damage one of mine, I will repair it and only charge for the materials used. I will do that for as long as you own it.

You will NOT find ANY of my leatherwork in shops.

I should be back to full strength on the leatherwork before Christmas.

Chopper

There is, and I have it covered. There are also websites for that sort of thing too.

Dirty old pervert..

Get a packet of frozen haddock in a plastic bag from Iceland, leave it to defrost and use the bag for your baccy the same as the rest of us..
